The Federal Procurement Institute (FPI) traditionally explores issues most relevant to federal government contracting. Today we face new issues and continuing challenges across the public contracting landscape — new legislative and regulatory requirements; protests, claims, audits, investigations and enforcement matters in the time of COVID-19, as well as continuing and emerging supply chain risk and management issues. We are excited to share the information about our program and offerings and invite you to register to join us online for the FPI.

CLE Credit

The ABA will seek 9 hours of CLE credit in 60-minute states, and 10.8 hours of CLE credit for this program in 50-minute states including 1.5 hours of CLE Ethics credit in 60-minute states and 1.8  hours of CLE Ethics credit in 50-minute states. Credit hours are estimated and are subject to each state’s approval and credit rounding rules. Please visit 
For more information, visit the  ABA Mandatory CLE page.

The ABA directly applies for and ordinarily receives CLE credit for ABA programs in AK, AL, AR, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DE, GA, GU, HI, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, ME, MN, MS, MO, MP, MT, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, SC, TN, TX, UT, VT, VA, VI, WA, WI, and WV. These states sometimes do not approve a program for credit before the program occurs. This program is approved for both newly admitted and experienced attorneys in NY. Attorneys may be eligible to receive CLE credit through reciprocity or attorney self-submission in other states. 

The ABA does not generally seek direct accreditation of live webinars and teleconferences in FL, ID, NE, RI, and WY. However, some programs are available in these states. Additionally, some states allow attorneys to earn credit through reciprocity or self-submission. Please see the webinar or teleconference’s program description page for details on the amount of credit requested and known accreditation exceptions, such as states where we are not seeking credit or denials by specific states. 

CPE Credit

CPE Credit is only available for the Live Webinar Sessions. CPE credit is not available for the on-demand sessions.

The American Bar Association is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors for Group Live programs (live in-person). State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, many State boards of accountancy are providing flexibility in the instructional delivery method and allowing for Group Live approved providers to issue credits for Group Live Internet Based vended programs. Kansas and New York do not allow for this flexibility, and waiver requests are pending with Iowa and North Dakota. All other State boards of accountancy have noted their flexibility. Complaints regarding registered sponsors may be submitted to the National Registry of CPE Sponsors through its website: www.learningmarket.org.

Recommended CPE Credits and Fields of Study: Program attendees can earn up to 10.8 CPE credits in specialized knowledge and behavioral ethics fields of study. There are no prerequisites.
